Why Become a DigiBC Member?

 

We believe that a group of companies working together through an industry association has a more powerful voice than those working in isolation. We also believe that it is the collective responsibility of those currently in this amazing industry sector to help grow it further, 'paying it forward' for the benefit of smaller companies, and ultimately future generations of company owners and employees. This means helping to define and leverage short-term and long-term policy into growth and educating the general public and future generations about the value of our sector. 

Now is a great time to be working in the Interactive and Digital Media (IDM) sector of the broader technology strategy in British Columbia. We have a real opportunity to make our sector the top cluster in the world if we work together with that aim in mind. If you agree, please join us today.

Dubbed "Vancouver's most art-full hotel" The Listel Hotel is a 4-star boutique hotel in the West End cultural hub, known for its enthusiastic service, commitment to high design & ultimate guest comfort. This intimate Robson street hotel boasts the perfect location in the city's premier shopping & restaurant precinct, in a city enthralled by both its own extraordinary beauty and the diverse cultures of the Pacific Rim.

Opened in November 2015, Timber pays tribute to BC's rich history and the tough people who built this province, one two-by-four at a time. The menu reads like a roadmap of Canadian comfort food. The homemade ketchup chips are not to be missed!
